BEYOND WONDERLAND – TIPS AND TRICKS

Beyond Wonderland

Beyond Wonderland is HERE, so now’s the time to mentally and physically prepare yourself for the weekend ahead. Here are of few of our best pieces of advice we can offer as you brace yourself for a weekend Beyond.

 

1. Wear something comfortable

Your outfit is a great way to express yourself at Beyond, but we promise that you’ll enjoy yourself more if you leave the fur coat, high heels, and leather jumpsuit at home. It’s possible to put together an outfit that really expresses your personality without sacrificing your comfort for the weekend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Plan around your “must-see” performances

List out who the artists are that you  have to see, and when they perform. These sets are your priority, so you should work the rest of your schedule around around them. Even if you have to separate from your group, it’s worth it to see your favorite song performed live instead of being pushed around at an artist’s set who you’ve never even heard of.

3. Keep an open mind

If you end up at a show for an artist you’ve never heard of – don’t disregard it. One of the most special aspects of music festivals is the discovery of new artists. Give the mystery set your full attention and you may have just found your new favorite artist.

4. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

This may seem like the most obvious piece of advice, but it’s the easiest to forget. There is so much going on at Beyond that hydration becomes low on your list of priorities. However, taking a sip of water at least every 30 minutes will ensure you don’t pass out right before a set you’ve been dying to see.

5. Enjoy the experience

Beyond Wonderland is a weekend full of music, friends, and an unforgettable experience. Live in the moment. Don’t let minor inconveniences prevent you from having the best weekend of your life. Make the most of your time at Beyond, and really appreciate where you are when you’re there so you won’t look back with any regrets.

MOUNTAIN HOME – TIPS

Mountain Home

There’s really no happier feeling than hearing your favorite country songs being performed live with your best friends. We can’t wait to dance around and sing at the top of our lungs at the Mountain Home Country Music Festival this summer. Even though this festival may not be until July, we’re so excited we started planning early. Here’s a few of our favorite ways to get ready and get pumped for Mountain Home:

1. Get a new cowboy hat

Wearing a cowboy hat at Mountain Home is a must. What better way to prepare for this festival than getting a new one? You can never have enough cowboy hats, so this year get a hat that really shows off your personality. If you get a really extravagant one, it may even catch the attention of your favorite artist.

2. Put on your favorite pair of boots

Ain’t nothing better than a good pair of boots, but we all have that one pair that we love a little more than the rest. You just feel more connected to country music when you’re wearing your boots, right? Nothing gets us more excited for a country festival than wearing our boots around everywhere we go.

3. Listen to every song by every artist on the lineup

Man Repeller GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Last, but not least, get all the preparation you can. You want to be that person that knows every word to every song since you’re the biggest fan. There’s no feeling like screaming the lyrics along with the rest of the crowd, or even better being one of the few people who knows even the most obscure songs. If you need a little inspiration, check out our Spotify playlist!

MCDOWELL MOUNTAIN – GROUPLOVE

McDowell Mountain
The McDowell Mountain Music Festival is coming the weekend of March 3 in Phoenix, Arizona, and we are so excited. This year, the lineup features artists such as Flume, The Shins, and Dj Mustard. One of their most anticipated performers, however, is Grouplove.

McDowell Mountain

 

After over a year of writing, recording, and producing, this five-member band finally released their third studio album – Big Mess. Christian Zucconi, one of the lead vocalists, explained to Interview Magazine why the band loves performing and missed it during their break, “When we get on stage we become our truer selves, I think; when we get to use music as our form of communication.” You can look forward to dancing to their upbeat hits such as “Tongue Tied” and “Ways to Go”. Grouplove’s songs stand out because of their unique balance. The catchy, upbeat music soundtracks the darker, deeper themes expressed in the lyrics, coming together to form their individualistic. recognizable sound.

Catch Grouplove, Lettuce, DJ Mustard + many more at McDowell Mountain Music Festival and grab your tickets below!
